SELECTIVE LISTENING is a laugh-out-loud, quirky, British comedy-drama. HARRISON is a nice guy with a history of schizophrenia and a limited social circle who battles the diverse and unpredictable voices he hears, a judgemental society and the hazards of social media as he attempts to make a new friend. To manage the voices, he projects them into his childhood toys: SMILING HERBERT contains the voice of rage, MOLLY is the voice of paranoia, BEAN represents irrepressible sexual thoughts, CONRAD speaks the bare facts, MARROW provides an indecipherable mumble and MOUSEY is the sound of panic. When Harrison happens upon the philanthropic online posts of the beautiful social media addict, AMBER, and she blindly accepts his "chum request", Harrison sees this as the beginning of a beautiful friendship, but is it...?

This is a lovely little film. I really laughed having met a few people like this myself, but at the same time it was serious and the bit with the hammer was not funny at all, not quite sure that the ending made sense. I loved the creativilty in this film and how it made one think about what it's like to have a cacophony in your head all day long.

Selective Listening made me laugh and cry! A charming story with touching insight into the world of a man who hears voices and the troubles he has making friends and understanding our world of cyber-chums. Amazing performances by the lead actors.

Lucky enough to have seen this at a film festival recently- What a fantastic film! Tackles a very serious topic with humour and sensitivity; a difficult balance, but this film pulls it off. Would definitely recommend!
